Homemade Chocolate Spread Recipe

Assalamualaikum and hello everyone!

So one day I was craving for something sweet and chocolatey. But I was too lazy to bake anything. Then, I go to where you can insert what ingredients you have at that moment and they will suggest what dish can you make from those. So let's see, I have butter, egg, sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla extract. And one of those suggestions is Chocolate Pudding! Sounds yummy aite? I clicked on the link and look at the recipe but the method is kind of emmmm idk but I don't like it hahaha.

Then I googled up "Chocolate pudding recipes" and I found an easy recipe from Hershey's website. C'mon man, it's Hershey's! Sure sedap meh :P And it is so easy, it uses cornstarch ;) After making the pudding and chilled it for a while, unfortunately, it didn't turn out like what I imagined. You know, pudding should be solid and not too runny but this one turned out to look like the Nutella spread! So, I declared myself succeed in making my own chocolate spread!

Ok enough babbling, so here is the recipe.

Homemade Chocolate Spread

2/3 cup sugar (but this is a bit too sweet to me)
1/4 cup Cocoa powder
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
2-1/4 cups milk
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Stir together sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt in medium saucepan; gradually stir in milk.

Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture boils; boil and stir 1 minute. 

Remove from heat; stir in butter and vanilla. 

Pour into jar. 

Chill the spread in the fridge for about three hours.

Disclaimer: I don't really know how long will it last if you don't keep it in the fridge :')

I think this spread is also good for cupcakes fillings or as a dip.

Life Update - December 2016

Assalamualaikum and hello everyone!

Long time no see! (Macam la ada orang baca lol). But who cares hahaha. So my last post was in August 2016 and now it's December! *christmas song.mp3* Here are a few things happened in the past 4 months.

1) I graduated from CFSIIUM yeay! Alhamdulillah I think I did well, although my CGPA is not 4.00 but I am really grateful that I pernah rasa dapat GPA of 4.00 which was on Sem 3, 2015/2016. And that is the best semester ever. The subjects, the lecturers and my financial condition pun was reallyyyyyy okay :')

2) I've done my kuliyyah interview yeay! For those who doesn't know, students of CFSIIUM from several courses (Medic, Pharmacy, Dentistry, Allied Health Sciences and Nursing) will need to attend an interview session to secure a place in kuliyyah (degree). There's a story about the interview process, but I think I'll write it in another post. Just a friendly reminder for those who thinking to apply for CFSIIUM or UIA for your foundation studies, remember this 
UIA and last minute notice berpisah tiada 
3) Along is married! The akad nikah ceremony is on Nov 11, 2016 and the kenduri was held on the day after.

4) I am officially unemployed. I have like almost a year of holiday before entering degree life (it's a very long stories and I am very sure all of CFS students pun dah muak nak bagitahu kenapa). Applied for jobs already but still no replies. So I'm currently staying at home, doing some house chores, socializing through the social media and sometimes I bake and cook new recipes.

5) Fudhla is two years old already! hehehe. She has no biological relationship with me but she is my sister's friend's friend's daughter. Sometimes they babysit her, sometimes they visit her since she was a baby. Oh! She has a baby brother already! His name is Fawwaz. What a handsome name kan!

Okay I think that's all for today. Till next time, bye!

Masa semakin singkat literally atau kita yang makin alpa?

Assalamualaikum and hello everyone!

Amboi tajuk acah betul, tapi itulah sebenarnya yang aku fikir. Tak sebenarnya it is based on my experience. Sekarang kan I’m in my last sem dekat CFS PJ ni and only God knows how I really want this to end. Like seriously I want to finish this as soon as possible. (I know I sound ungrateful but never mind only I know what I’m going through). And surprisingly sem ni rasa kejap gila and now I’m halfway through it. Tetiba dah exam midsem, tetiba dah kena submit assignments, tetiba dah test Bio.
            Compared to last sem which I really really enjoy myself. We (me & my roommates) did so much thing together. Seoul Garden, Mood Republik, sewa kereta adhoc sebab tetiba kena ambik tiket kat TSK, outing to almost every mall at Kuantan :’), pergi makan kat matriks, pergi pasar malam, pergi Taman Tas 88 kali, gotong-royong bilik 80juta kali tapi lepas 2 hari sepah balik, kacau uda kaklis kaktin along dengan mat kat cafĂ©, masak and makan sekali dekat tengah bilik. And mahallah’s activities too. All those talks, program MRC (rindunya MRC!) : Usrah, Ohana, BBQ dalam blackout, meeting pukul 7 pagi, pastu keluar cari barang BBQ huhuhu and so much more. I enjoyed last sem lectures as well! Rasa macam panjang and best gila sem lepas.
My MRC ohana :)
            Besides from His promise which when The Day is coming, the time will be getting shorter I think it’s human fault who takes time for granted. It depends on how they spent their time; is it filled with beneficial activities or deeds or just let the time go. When we don’t even care about our time; where and how it’s spent, that’s very dangerous ladies and gentlemen. I remembered a tazkirah by someone while I was in school I think, which he asked, why did in the past, the Companions and the successors can read a lot of Quran pages in a night but not us today? (correct me if I’m wrong). It’s because their time was blessed. And that person which I don’t even remember who was it told us to pray to Allah untuk bagi kita keberkatan masa. (It is bold and Malay because I think it’s more meaningful in Malay, pardon my poor vocab).

   So start the engine and start movin’! Don’t procrastinate or else you’ll find your past trapped in the future ;)

Pada suatu hari,

Assalamualaikum and hello everyone!

Pada suatu hari
Ada seorang anak kecil
Sedang sibuk bermain
Tanpa kisahkan siapa saja.

Pada suatu hari
Ada seorang remaja
Sedang leka dan sibuk
Mengikut arus semasa.

Pada suatu hari
Ada seorang pemuda
Sedang asyik berfikir
Cara perbaiki ummah tercinta.

Pada suatu hari
Ada seorang pemudi
Sedang tekun dan gigih
mentadabur buku dan kitabnya.

Pada suatu hari
Ada seorang bapa
Sedang gigih bekerja
Untuk menanggung keluarga.

Pada suatu hari
Ada seorang ibu
Sedang penat menasihati
Si anak dara.

Pada suatu hari
Ada seorang datuk
Yang sedang terlantar di katil
Menghabiskan sisa hari tua.

Pada suatu hari
Ada seorang nenek
Sedang sibuk di dapur
Memasak juadah raya.

Pada suatu hari,
Tiada lagi siapa-siapa.

"celakanya perasaan ini

ku fikirkan aku bisa berdiri sendiri

terlalu percaya pada kudrat diri

sampai aku lupa yang aku tak mampu berdiri"

tak tu bukan aku carut, tu lirik lagu.
fynn jamal - jangan jatuh
mixed feelings, in need of kind words.
